Dear Ashamed,
1 I am tend to agree with your husband's reaction.
2 You should try to put the incident behind of you.
3 Even though she is the one who has let you down
4 but she cannot forgive herself until you have
5 managed to forgive her. You seem to think that guilty
6 feelings are belong to you both. This is the real
7 shame. You should put an energy into making
8 your daughter feel better by talking over her problems.
9 This kind of situation is unfortunately quite a
10 common, you know. Most of kids, in my experience,
11 they do something like this at some stage. It is
12 a long time ago since this happened and if I can
13 give you some advice it is this: take her on holiday,
14 before she makes herself really ill, and enjoy
15 yourselves. I am confident that as soon as you will
16 leave your home environment the feelings of a
17 shame will begin to fade. Afterwards let her to
18 face up to people in her own time.
19 I am sure that you can sort every things out.
Yours sincerely,
Angela Strong

Why don't you try first, underlining the word that you think is unnecessary? We can comment on your attempt.
